Subject: That really is it for the Other one
If they were going to bring back the entire Other One the band really needed to support Garcia more on the Cryptical. The traditional Weir part gets a boost from the full tune being played but that intro is vocally weak.
After hearing this version I can see why they dropped it after a few attempts.
Otherwise this is a good show as already stated.
When I finally got to Cali and saw the Greek I got why the Dead loved playing there!

Subject: Great Recording
These Keshavan shows are known for their pristine audio fidelity. Gleaming highs, present and clear mids, booming bass. This recording does the show justice.

As for the show itself, typical 1985. Sloppy but fun and lovable. Lightning fast first set, showcasing this year's energy and frenetic pacing.

Really liked this one.

Subject: OMFG
the bass plunges on this clear FOB are
spine tingling.

Rango has a history of putting out some of the finest masters and this is the first one I have seen him using these AKG mics. The 6-14-85 show taped by him was with his staple, the sony 220s which I always thought put out phenomenal sound. Comparing: this show sounds better with tons of bass, could have been placement variation, I dunno.

There were always the cleanest boards cirrculating of these berkeley shows which tends to move them up a few notches on the relative rating/overrating scale. They are definity worth a listen just to hear the fidelity.


recording 5
show 3, these have been highly overrated over the years
